Shishamo Roe Capelin 4L Recalled Due To Potential Of C. Botulinum

. By
Washington, DCPacific American Fish Co, Inc. of Vernon, California is recalling SHI306 Shishamo 4L 5PC (23-28G) Wild, Pack 4/20TR, Lots 202885-2 & 201011-3, Master Carton information. Based on FDA Import Alert, this type of processing and size of product has the potential to be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium which can cause food borne illness. Consumers are warned not to use the product even if it does not appear to be spoiled.

Common symptoms of C. botulinum may be difficulty in breathing, weakness of other muscles, abdominal distension and constipation. C. botulinum can also cause the further symptoms if Shishamo was not properly cooked at recommended temperatures and consumed in large quantities. Those people with compromised immune systems, the elderly, and children have a higher risk and could possibly experience general weakness, dizziness, double-vision and trouble speaking or swallowing. People experiencing these problems should seek immediate medical attention.

Product was distributed in California, Kansas, Hawaii, Washington, New York, Texas via retail stores.

Shishamo Roe Capelin in retail packages can be identified as 5 pieces of frozen fish packaged in a styrofoam plate, wrapped in plastic. Label reads Pacific American Fish Co, Roe Capelin, and says Shishamo in Japanese script.

No illnesses have been reported to date, this product recall is prompted by FDA's Import Alert regarding the salt-cured, uneviscerated fish, larger than 5 inches in length. The Shishamo in question exceeded that size parameter by 1/4" to 1 1/4 inches and therefore is slightly over the stated regulation.
